What We Like

What We Don't Like

  • Lack of in-house monitoring option
  • Limited smart home integration
  • Mobile app reliability issues

Bottom Line

Because we purchased cellular backup, our Fortress system stayed on 24/7, even when our power went out. Plus, with professional monitoring from a third party, we were protected even if we couldn't respond to an app notification.
